Summer Education Camps

Kids on Campus! Teens on Campus!

Summer 2017

Temple Ambler has been offering Summer Education Camps for more than 25 years at our convenient suburban campus. Camps are available for kids, tweens, and teens between the ages of 8 and 17, during the months of June, July and August. Most camps are one-week, full-day camps that run Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., although some shorter camp and longer camps sessions are also available.

The Temple University Ambler Summer Education Camps provide a wonderful opportunity for youths to learn about a specific area of interest, experience a college campus and have lots of fun at the same time.

Early Bird Discount: Register and pay by March 31, 2017, and take $50 off each camp fee, unless otherwise noted that discounts do not apply. Discount is not taken off the materials or computer lab fees.
